A JALSA team is forming to mobilize our communities for criminal justice reform. In April, the State Legislature passed one of the most sweeping criminal justice reform bills to date in Massachusetts. Our team wants to educate ourselves about how far-reaching the bill is and what organizations made its passage possible. This will be a casual discussion about our team’s future involvement in criminal justice reform campaigns and to learn from each other’s experiences.

We will be joined by John Bowman, the Access to Justice Fellow with Jobs Not Jails.

Dinner and refreshments will be provided!

Space is wheelchair accessible. Find parking information here. To RSVP and for accessibility, food or other needs, please reach out to Alison at alison.jalsa@gmail.com.
